I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In the absence of a more fitting answer, you could include a stopwatch in your code and check the elapsed time once it finishes:
System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch clocker = new System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch();

// Run code

TimeSpan elapsed1 = clocker.Elapsed;
// --OR--
long elapsed2 = clocker.ElapsedMilliseconds;
// --OR--
long elapsed3 = clocker.ElapsedTicks;

DateTime startTime = DateTime.Now;
//Execute Code Here
long executionTicks = DateTime.Now.Ticks - startTime.Ticks;
Console.WriteLine("Code executed in {0} ticks.", executionTicks);

You could modify the code to also count seconds or milliseconds or any other metric you want.

You should be able to use the Performance Analysis tools that come with Visual Studio.NET to time all your code.  I believe there are differences in the tool, depending on the IDE version that you are using.
